Striving to do my best and adjusting my strategy to be as effective as possible is more than just practical; I’d go so far as to say it’s spiritual.  In striving to do my best, I—by necessity—reduce egoic considerations of self.  In seeking to adopt the most effective strategy, I sharpen my perception of myself and the world.

The rest of the stuff—the books, the psychedelics, the meditation, the rituals, the philosophy—seem like icing on the cake.  If they assist me in doing my best and streamlining my approach, then great.  If not, then it’s time to set them aside and focus on the basics:  discipline, focus, and strategy.

  1. sounds like you have process and perspective mastered; what is left is purpose. A friend once wisely suggested, “things not worth doing are not worth doing well.” I mean, choosing what you want and when are even more important than process.

    A well chosen purpose, even done ineptly, is better than a masterly poor choice. You seem to know what satisfies you, so that should not be a problem. Do you have any thoughts on choosing purpose and priorities?
